New York Script Award is a screenplay festival with IMDb Qualifing Festival (https://www.imdb.com/event/ev0031319/overview/) that presents the best screenwriters in the world. We are looking for screenplays that we offer as a product to the world's independent film directors, producers, film investors and film productions.

Our festival combines productions that are looking for suitable scripts for their future projects. We also connect music creators and creators of music videos.

The judges of the competition are established world screenwriters of feature and short films. We are awarded and often nominated in established competitions such as the LA Screenplay Awards or the Chicago Screenplay Awards. The judges of the competition are adapted world screenwriters of feature and short films.

Our festival collaborates with the independent film academy Golden Art Film Academy, which helps producers, directors, actors and screenwriters find work. Among other things, he will distribute more than $ 5,000 in cash in 2022. This means that one project (film, screenplay, music video) will be nominated for this academy.

The best project in the main category will be nominated for the independent Golden Art Film Academy, which will redistribute $ 5,000 in 2022!
